I love this product; however, about the 3rd time I used one I put it on about 3 hours before heading out for the evening. Everything dried very quickly and did not get on my clothes, however, when I got home later that night I noticed I had prominent tan lines on my feet from where my shoe straps were. Luckily I was able to buff out the color back to an even tan.

It gives a very nice deep color. I am short, but average build and one towel does my entire body - which is very nice. Using this twice a week I can maintain a "tan" without having to lie out in the heat and it does not look orange-y. I am normally pale with a bit of an olive tone and this gives a very nice, natural color to me.

The smell is there - same as with any self-tanner, but it is not obnoxious and is fairly pleasant.

I will definitely buy this product regularly, even though I live in Florida. I love the ease of use. I don't get the little sparkles that I got with the gel formula - which drove me nuts. I will just always make sure to use it the day before I'm going to go somewhere so that I don't get tan lines on my feet from my shoes in the future!!

You'd think the towelettes would make it easier to apply, but with no bronzer, you don't know where you've applied - so it's easy to streak (went over THIS area twice, missed this area altogether). Color's a tad orange. I'll be scrubbing off last night's horridly streaky application in the shower this morning (I hope it comes off, or I'll be housebound until it does). One positive thing about this product is that I barely noticed a smell when I opened the packet or later, on my skin. If you're an expert self-tanner, this might work for you, but for very pale beginners, another product will probably make you happier.

    Very simple to use. I am extremely fair skinned and try not to get to much sun on this old body at this time in my life. Looks really natural compared to some spray products I see on the younger set. Some people look awfully clownish. Not with this product.

      Have been using this product since it was introduced a few years ago. The scent has improved greatly and is the only feature that I thought should be addressed. Thank you for that!

      I will always use this product. Please do NOT stop producing it!

        Have used this product for three years and it really works. You start to see a difference with the first application and after three you can start using twice a week to maintain (of course, depends on how dark you want to be). Dries fast and doesn't feel sticky. Highly recommend!

        This is the 3rd year I have used. Many comments on how natural it looks. Usually use 2 days in a row to get right color and it will last about 4 days.

        The color is great. But it was streaky and it made me look dirty in places I didn't apply it correctly. I will not be buying this again. I will stick to the lotions

        This product is great in that it is fast and easy to use. Produces an even tan and you don't have to get into bed sticky! It dries more quickly than any of the sprays or lotions on the market. The smell is also pretty low-key for a self tanner. I would recommend these!

            I use the Tanning Gelee when I'm wanting a darker look because I'm going to CA or during the summer to have a bit darker 'tan'. Between 'major' tanning events I use the Self Tan Towelettes, which give just enough color to keep you looking like you've spent a little time at the beach. As we are entering fall and soon winter, I will continue to use the towelettes at least once or twice a week to keep the glow of summer tan alive, which I believe makes one look healthier. I fell in love with Sublime the first time I used it as it was the only tanner I have ever used that looked natural, not streaky or funny colored. As for anything not so great...haven't found it yet (thank goodness:)

            Comments about L'Oreal Paris Sublime Self-Tanning, Towelettes, Medium, 6 ea:

            I've been looking for a successful self-tanner since I have blonde hair and fair skin and could use a bit of a "summer glow". I was really hopeful when I read all of the great reviews, so I decided to give this product a go. After using it for a few weeks, it wasn't horrible, but the end result was somewhat disappointing. I thought it gave a natural, fast, glowing color (not orange). It felt light, had a pleasant suntan lotion scent, and an easy towelette application. However, even though I was extremely careful to apply it properly and evenly, I found that my legs turned out VERY streaky and splotchy. I tried multiple techniques, but the outcome was always the same. It was almost like areas didn't get covered even though I took my time to be thorough. Maybe it's b/c my skin is more taut/shiny on my legs, so the cloth sorta 'scraped' off the lotion during application?? Not sure. It seemed to go on fairly well on the rest of my body. Also, I noticed when it begins to fade, it gives your skin this freckley, grainy look which I didn't like. As for the drying time, it was VERY long. I don't mind standing buck naked in front of a fan for 30 minutes if it will give me a great even tan. But the end results just didn't justify the hassle. I'm sure it will work for some people, but it just didn't work out for me.

            P.S. BEWARE! Even if you allow 1 hr to dry, if you scratch your skin (even lightly) or even perspire slightly in the next 3 hrs after application (for example, in the crux of your knee when they are bent), the product will "wash" off in that spot and will give you a splotchy blank area/streak.
